Family heritage – Landmark Homes show home


When it comes to choosing a new home, security of investment is right up there as a key consideration, which makes the cladding choice all the more significant.

Sarah McMullin, managing director of the Landmark Homes Counties franchise, says James Hardie Scyon Linea weatherboards were specified for the Karaka Lakes show home.

"These weatherboards complement the design and bring a sense of enduring style and permanence that is appropriate for this house," she says. "The weatherboards have a 16mm profile, which creates deep shadows that enhance the overall look of the house.

"Landmark Homes frequently specifies Scyon Linea cladding because it is low maintenance, highly durable and can be painted in any colour – many of our contemporary homes with mono-pitched roofs suit the darker shades. We also appreciate the fact that Scyon Linea weatherboards are made to withstand New Zealand weather conditions."

Scyon Linea is made from an advanced lightweight cement composite with a heavy-duty performance. As well as being versatile due to its light weight, it is resistant to fire, swelling, shrinking, moisture damage and rot. Builders appreciate the fact that it can be gun nailed and is easy to cut. In addition, paint application is fast, because the pre-primed sheets mean less paint is required to achieve a quality finish.


James Hardie Scyon Linea weatherboards are made in New Zealand and are backed by the company's 25-year guarantee, which provides further peace of mind for the future homeowner.
